Low-Cost Multiturn Kit Encoders for Stepper Motors
POSITAL’s kit encoders for stepper or servo motors are the perfect mechanical drop-in replacement as they have the same footprints as US Digital’s E5 models and Broadcom’s (Avago) HEDS-5500 models. By providing absolute position feedback, the control system always has complete information on the physical position of the mechanical components that it is directing. These absolute kit encoders also have prices much more in line with incremental devices! Therefore, system designers no longer have to work around the shortcomings of incremental feedback in an absolute position world.
